Instant Pot Hawaiian Ribs are fall off the bone tender and full of big flavor. Since these are made in the pressure cooker they’re ready in a fraction of the time of traditional ribs – making ours convenient for any night of the week. This post is sponsored by Dixie Crystals. Opinions are my own.
One of my absolute favorite things to make in the Instant Pot are Baby Back Ribs. Falling off the bone tender meat is the reason I (and probably you too) love baby back ribs. What I didn’t love, before the Instant Pot came into my life, was the time that it took to grill or bake a rack of ribs. Hours y’all. Hours.
These Instant Pot Hawaiian Ribs are ready in a fraction of the time thanks to pressure cooking. I know they look so good you might not want to continue reading or scroll to grab the recipe. I got you –> JUMP TO THE RECIPE.
What is an Instant Pot ?
An Instant Pot is a Canadian brand of small kitchen appliances. It’s an electronically controlled pressure multi-cooker. It was designed to consolidate the prep and cooking of food. It’s incredibly convenient and comes in many makes and models to suit just about any need or lifestyle.
(Note: The following is an affiliate link, I earn from qualifying purchases) I have a 6 quart Instant Pot. It’s the perfect size for my needs (it cooks for up to 6 people). Need a different size? No worries, as I mentioned, Instant Pot comes in smaller or larger sizes to suit your needs.
Don’t even get me started on all the cool accessories that you can pick up.
How to Remove The Membrane From Ribs?
These ribs require a little prep. One of those steps is to remove the the membrane. It’s an important step so don’t skip it. Why do we remove the membrane? It helps the ribs to take the seasoning better and we want all that flavor.
TIP: The membrane can be a little slippery and hard to grab onto. My trick is, after I have carefully run a knife down the back of the ribs to loosen the membrane, I place a paper towel on an edge of membrane and then pull. The paper towel allows me to easily grip the membrane and pull it off. It may come off in pieces and that’s okay. Just stay the course, and continue the process until it’s all been removed.
About the Recipe …
Once you’ve got that pesky little membrane sorted, it’s time to add the flavor. We’re doing that with a marinade. The rack of ribs will take a quick dip in a blend of big flavors like Dixie Crystal’s Brown Sugar, sherry, soy sauce and more.
Don’t worry, it’s only an hour marinade. We did say quick. You can take that time to decide on what to serve with your Instant Pot Hawaiian Ribs. Fries to dip into that sauce? I’m cool with that.
Before you know it the you’ll be locking the lid so the pressure cooker magic can happen and you can work on those sides. You’ll be grabbing extra napkins and licking your fingers soon enough.
